Frugal Flowerpots

Welcome to One {Frugal} Chick Friday!

Happy Friday Afternoon Friends!

Hope you enjoyed my fun tutorial at Poppy Seed Projects today!

Ready for my Frugal Chick idea of the week?

Maybe you have already planted your Spring flowers, maybe you have yet to begin and maybe you are somewhere in between…It was cold way too long here in the Midwest, so I am still planting.  My flowers are just beginning to grow and my garden is just a marked off square in the yard.

Partially because I am frugal and partially because I love the unexpected in decorating, I did not go out and purchase any new pots this year.  Rather, I raided the garage and barn in search of cool containers to do my planting.

At SNAP, I took a class on succulents…I took oodles of pictures of awesome planting ideas.  One of my favorites was an old toy dump truck with the bed loaded in succulents.  I knew it would be the perfect addition to my exterior Spring decor.

Here’s my version…

Here are a few other ideas I ended up going with…

Why not plant strawberries in a large galvanized bin?

A metal trough for an herb garden…

An antique chicken feeder for succulents…

Not sure what this pan is, but I love it’s shape!

What fun, interesting or re-purposed items are you using in your flower planting this year?
